Ok, I'm deciding whether it's better to have a large website with many many pages built up over a period of time, or have many websites that target a niche, and I wondering how my fellow Warriors are doing?

    I tend to have my website 10 pages or less

    I find with my busy schedule and attention span it is easier to manage and place content on them.

    Having so many pages on a topic is tough to manage from many aspects and time is a premium for me.

    The other thing is, I have made really successful sites copied the success in many respects hoping for the same results and disappointed, so investing a little time is better to fail early.

    Just the way I do things.

    Are you a newbie who wants to kickstart your sales ASAP?
    Do you have a killer product but lack the cash to hire a top-notch copywriter to help you rake in the profits you deserve?

    Depends for me.... If I'm creating a laser targeted niche site or Adsense I only put up 5-10 pages. If I'm going for a niche site with a wider range of sub niches like automobiles -> tires -> rims -> paint -> etc then I keep adding pages.

    I like to have a mix of larger sites with smaller sites. I've read on the forum that some warriors got their 150+ page sites slapped by Google. So I figured to diversify.

    More is better but quality is essential. More pages you have search engine thinks you are expert in your field but make sure the content are worthy and not spamming. Generally, the best way to increase the pages are including blog in your website!

    How many pages do you have on each website? 10, 100, 1000?

    The short answer to that question is "yes".

    My largest site has just over 2000 pages. My smallest have just a handful - probably 5 - 10 (inc privacy, contact us)

      I have sites with only a few pages and I also have sites with 100's of pages. It really all depends upon your goals for your sites. Many of mine started off small, but I just kept on adding new articles.

    Cost dictates that I have about 10 unique articles on each of my sites. Any more would bankrupt me!!

    Most of my sites are 3-5 pages to begin with. Some grow over time as I add what I consider my clients want. As for ranking and getting traffic, I get that on day one even when I just have one page up.

    60+ websites with between 5 and 10 pages in 3 markets.
    And another 20 sites in all different markets.
    1 website with 100+ pages
    1 website with 500+ pages
    1 website with 1000+ pages

    My 1000+ website makes me the most money and puts A LOT of people on my list.

    Besides that I got a whole bunch of sites with a bunch of salesletters.

    I don't know if that helps. But that is how I built my business. And it didn't even take me all that much effort honestly. And no, I did not outsource most of it.

    Thanks for the heads up guys. I guess it's good to have a varying amount of pages in your website portfolio. Right now my biggest is about 150. Smallest is 1 page! :p

    Although, I must say the biggest converts best.

  • Assuming you're simply using these websites to get Google traffic and put ads on the site promoting your own product or affiliate products...

    I would do both.

    I personally have 1 "authority" site with tons of pages that ranks for all kinds of keywords... But I also have smaller 5-10 page sites that rank #1 for a handful of keywords.

    I'm currently working on building these smaller sites to match the traffic I get from my authority site.

    Because guess what happens when your big authority site gets Google slapped? There goes all your traffic!

    Why not diversify your traffic and build multiple sites? Personally I would begin with a small site. Get that ranked and then move on and duplicate the process getting these small sites ranked...

    Then once you've got some experience, start building out a larger "authority site."

    Google requires min of 5 ; especially to avoid "thin affiliate" issues. It will also depend on the CMS used for your site ; Google loves Wordpress ; especially with SEO, Permalinks and Sitemap activated.

    added note - this does not include squeeze pages. ; also I have seen software to "slowly build" your site up automatically sucking in content related to your site. I have tried it ; it works well.

    You should realize there isn't a "right way" here.

    A small site with one post can pull in thousands per month.

    A huge site with thousands of posts can make NOTHING.

    It all depends on your traffic and conversions.

    Good info here. I will take it all into account. I also found that using subdomains on my larger websites helps them rank easily, especially if they are using the keyword. for example..

    if i had: "filingcabinets.c0m", i make "cheap.filingcabinets.c0m" Then on that subdomain I build a smaller website that links to the large one. Very effective.

    I have 4 mini sites built around single amazon products which each have 4-5 pages. These are targeting one keyword only so that is sufficient.

    Most of my other sites have 10+ which i add to as and when i have time. With any site the more fresh and unique content you have the better you will do with the search engines.
